Angela Bassett makes her directorial debut on Lifetime with her upcoming Whitney Houston biopic, starring Yaya DaCosta. The film, currently shooting, released a photo of DaCosta posing as the cover photo of Houston’s 1987 sophomore album, Whitney, to Entertainment Weekly. The picture alone has diehard Whitney fans feeling like either DaCosta is perfect for the role or Bassett and company have made a grave mistake. What say you?
